Pink Floyd's "Time" in the second set is really good! Trippy, Floyd-style with the lyrics pretty much nailed (didn't know if that was Chuck or Al singing). Segue in is sweet and the jam out teases Frankie Goes to Hollywood "Relax" before settling on a more psychedlic Floyd tune "Careful With That Ax Eugene". Nice...
This is a very good sounding audience recording so far, on good-quality head phones. Clear separation with Rob's bass coming through solidly. The audience sounds on this one enhance rather than detract from the show, an enthuastic crowd, but low in the mix.

This Show Towers!!!
I've seen 30+ moe shows -- bar none this was the best. The energy in the buliding that night goes unmatched by anything I've been apart of for some time. In particular, from Down Boy on a "zen like" quality of concert experiece seemed to manifest. That's the best I can explain it, it was like the show had a mind of it's own. If you were there you know what I'm talking about -- if not download now and find out for yourself.
Everyone raves, and rightfully so, about the badass BBlack and the Tim Tucker of titanic porportions, my advice is check out Spine>Lost>Time, George. Spine is different from any version I've heard -- psychedelic, yet structured, and leads perfectly into Lost Along the Way Home. First time hearing Lost Along for me -- I was impressed to say the least. It was, in fact, one of the best moments of the show for me. Just so much emotion encapsuled...plus the segue into Time is extraordinary. Time is an absolutely searing version. Tucker, is just perfect (don't miss the BBlack tease toward the end). George = EPIC. Best ever, by far.
The encore was predictable, but well played nonetheless. Time constraints, what are you going to do.
Bottom line, best show, any band, I've taken in, in some time.

November 5 is Alive!!
This show completely rocked.
Philly was stoked for moe. to come back and the crowd showed that. Any show at the Tower has something special and I've even seen moe. here maybe 6 or 7x but the energy in here was infectuous. The place was nuts. Down Boy>Brent Black was great, and the second set from Spine on was just an entity of its own. Lost was my first and probably the best I'll hear...alittle different from what I'm used to from moe. but just a great experience, building, climax, TIME. Al teased Timmy Tucker for like 5 minutes driving everyone in my section insane, I started to doubt whether he was going to drop in or not until, whomp!
Anyways, great moe. great energy, great setlist what more can you ask for in a show?

My second moe. show live ...
... and I must say that the second set OWNED!
I was a little disappointed with the first set, though it had two of my favorite songs of Threw It and Puttin Down. It really started to rise during the Brent Black.
Rob and Al were really on fire this evening! Chuck was shredding finely with a nicely placed Time. Vinnie and Jim ruled on the Brent Black solos.
Liked Freakin Awesome and George, though I felt that Biblical was a little lacking. Good audio from what I hear so far ... two days after the show! Freakin awesome!
